The long and the short of it

Dare I say it?

Yes, I shall.

She'll probably receive a short sentence.

Alleged Teen Prostitute's Pimp In NYC Court Monday
By Ninad Shah and Lee Kushnir

NEW YORK (CBS) ― A dwarf charged with prostituting an underage runaway will appear in Kings County Supreme Court on Monday.

Jacqueline Green, a.k.a. 'Shorty,' due to her 3 foot 9 inch height, is charged with promoting prostitution and child endangerment for allegedly pimping a 15-year-old that ran away from a troubled home.

According to published reports, Green is accused of using her Bedford-Stuyvesant apartment as a sex pad for clients who paid $250 per half-hour for intercourse, and $100 per half-hour of oral sex.

Clients were found using Craigslist.

Green, 26, pleaded not guilty to all charges. The teenage girl was returned to her family. It is not clear how the two met.

Neighbors at Green's Brooklyn housing project were not surprised by the arrest, where she was described as a "hustler," and a "player."

Reginald Forden told the Post, "I didn't know she was a pimp, but I'm not surprised."
